  1. I would like to say Thank you all for taking time to honor my brother, Roger Vice. I consider it a Great Honor to have your support. What a great organization! Again, my sincere Thanks, and I pray for your safety in this and al missions. God be with each and everyone in your service.

  2. Mission Complete: 30 May 2020– SH3 Roger Dale Vice , USN Vietnam Veteran Norman, Chickasha OK.

    On Friday 30 May 2020, there were 19 Patriot Guard Riders on 15 bikes and 2 cages who attended the mission to Honor the Military Service of USN SH3 Roger Dale Vice Vietnam Veteran.

    The briefing was held, followed by a moment of silence for the Blue, Silver, & Gold Star families, POWs and MIAs. A prayer asking comfort for the grieving family, a safe mission and protection for our military personnel engaged in the Global War on Terror was also said.

    The riders staged at The Cross Church in Norman Okla. and waited for the police escort and coach to arrive so we could accompany Mr. Vice and family and friends to Fairview Cemetery in Chickasha Okla. Once at the cemetery we formed a Respect Line as our hero was moved from coach to bier. The preacher gave his sermon and the 2 nephews folded the American flag while a PGR member played Taps.

    With the help of 2 PGR members the RCIC thanked the family for allowing us to be there and presented the 2 nephews and Mr. Vice’s brother with the plaques and framed invocations. This ended our mission.

    Thank you to my fellow PGR for attending this mission. Your presence made a difference to this family. Looking at this family in their hour of mourning, they very much appreciated our presence and made me proud to do the missions that we do.

    Most of all, thank you SH3 Roger Dale Vice for your service to this great nation. Stand down Sir, your watch is over, and you will not be forgotten.

    Respectfully,
    RCIC: Dennis Denson
